Classic Collection
The Classic Collection is right at
the heart of Focal’s expertise, that
of the traditional loudspeaker.
An historic tradition of the highfidelity or Home Cinema system,
each component of the ”chain“ (the
amplifier, the sources, the cables
and naturally, the loudspeakers) is
passionately chosen with precious
advice from specialists.
These are also technological
loudspeakers, as each line of
this collection explores solutions
which are innovative, exclusive and
protected by numerous patents
in order to ensure we have the
best loudspeaker possible in all
categories.
Finally, these are loudspeakers
made with passion, created by
passionate people, entirely designed
and manufactured at the production
site in Saint-Etienne. From the
Grande Utopia EM, considered
as the absolute benchmark
worldwide, to the small Chorus 705,
all Focal loudspeakers are created
and manufactured by the same
teams, with the same know-how.
Utopia III is our reference
loudspeaker range, an icon which
exudes luxury and the values
of the brand, where innovation
is constant and compromises
are unacceptable, the pinnacle
of world class speaker design.
Moreover, the finishing can be
100% personalised.
Electra 1000 Be 2 is the Premium
line with the best technologies
often taken from the Utopia III.
A compact and complete highend, once again with endless
possibilities for personalisation.
The Aria 900 symbolises a new
technological era for high-fidelity
loudspeakers. Equipped with Flax
cone speaker drivers, this line
combines a conservative and
modern design. The essence of
the “Affordable High-End”.
The 4th generation of Chorus 700
is faithful to the core concepts
of the range: affordability and
remarkable sound potential.
The style has been modified to
correspond to modern trends,
leaving behind the “V” design in
favour of more flowing curves.
Easya is at the border of two worlds:
it features the qualities of a classic
high-fidelity loudspeaker and is
perfectly adapted to the listening
methods of today’s consumer.
The strong identity of the design
makes this generation of wireless
loudspeakers a true art-deco object
with high perceived value.
The Classic Collection, five different
universes for discovering our
philosophy ”the Spirit of Sound”.
the Spirit of Sound
Since 35 years, Focal has designed,
developed and manufactured
drive-units and loudspeakers. Our
renown is international: that of
a market leader in the segment
of quality acoustic loudspeakers.
Over these years, several legendary
models and series have appeared
and led the way to greater success
and prestige. At the zenith of this
evolution, the Grande Utopia.
This speaker alone created a
worldwide shock that inscribed
Focal into history books as the
most innovative loudspeaker
brand on the planet. Innovation,
design and industrialisation
follow in a tradition where skilled
handwork remains an essential
element of our luxury offering, and
justifies our activities in research
and development, and most of
all, the manufacturing of our
loudspeakers at our production
site. Dynamism and creativity are
intrinsic Focal values.
We believe that to push limits is the
only possible avenue to innovation and
that all that belongs to the domain
of the impossible simply represents
a challenge. The inverted-dome
tweeter, pure Beryllium, the exclusive
”W” sandwich composite cone,
Polyglass, the OPC crossover,
Focus Time, IAL structure, highoutput BASH digital amplification,
subwoofers with digital processing,
and more recently the Flax cone…
all these technologies represent
solutions to the previously impossible.
Innovation, tradition, performance
and pleasure are our key values; they
characterise “the Spirit of Sound”.
> At home, in your car, in professional studios, in public places and in the street, the Focal world begins where there’s a need for a quality sound.
> Loudspeaker workshops.
Utopia III
Myths develop over the years
The Grande Utopia story started
in 1995 with a major innovation:
the W composite sandwich cone.
It went on in 2002 with the
Grande Utopia Be that introduced
the pure Beryllium inverted
dome tweeter. Other important
inventions distinguished those two
reference loudspeakers, which are
still existing in the 2008 Grande
Utopia. But nothing that can be
compared to the W sandwich or
the Beryllium, showcase of Focal’s
know-how, Focal, designer and
manufacturer of the best drivers in
the world.
The 2008 technological break
concerns once again the driver at the heart of Focal’s know -how
- with the Electro-Magnet woofer
technology. Such a decisive step
that it gives its name to this third
generation of Grande Utopia. It’s
a new milestone that is added to
the long list of innovations coming
from the previous generations of
Grande Utopia: “W” cone, Focus
Time, Multiferrite, Beryllium,
Power Flower, OPC, Gamma
Structure, all Utopia’s patrimony
> Grande Utopia EM Black Lacquer finish.
is taken up in its entirety,
enriched with new technologies.
To preserve this heritage, the
2008 Grande Utopia had to be
immediately visually identifiable,
keeping its imposing aspect of a
reference loudspeaker, without
being massive. To reach our first
goal, we kept the Focus Time
structure and the separate blocks
for each driver, the true aesthetic
signature of the Grande Utopia. To
lighten the shape, the delimitation
between the blocks is more
important. Simplifying the object
in the extreme and eliminating
what could be aesthetically
superfluous.
Handed over to Pineau & Le Porcher
agency, with which Focal-JMlab
has been collaborating since
2003, the Grande Utopia EM’s
design is all purity and clarity obvious. That’s a truly amazing
feat for a loudspeaker that now
reaches 78” (2m) high and weighs
573lbs (260kg)…
> Optional Diablo Utopia Stand, 24” (60cm).
> Optional Viva Utopia Stand, 16” (40cm).
Compact, distinguished and captivating, Diablo Utopia is the ultimate
vision of the reference bookshelf
loudspeaker, in the purest Focal’s
tradition. Largely inspired from
the Grande Utopia EM, it sets new
milestones in the bass thanks to
its new patented 61/2” (16.5cm)
Power Flower, with almost no
saturation, and a driver integrated resonator. Fixed on a dedicated
stand, Diablo Utopia enchants the
midrange and the treble with its
definition, demonizes the bass with
a density and a power handling
never reached so far.
The Sub Utopia EM is the last building
block of the Utopia 3 range and the
logical follow-up to the ultimate multichannel reference speaker; Viva Utopia.
With this subwoofer, Focal focused all its
know-how on an entirely passive design,
based around a 13-inch Electromagnet
bass driver, that appeared with the
Grande Utopia EM. An ideal complement
to the Viva Utopia, this subwoofer can
be used with any model of the range,
including the Grande Utopia EM. Its
secret? A clever stackable design (up to
3 subwoofers tall) that can answer even
the most demanding power needs. The
unequaled punch of EM technology, with
the refinement and finesse of Utopia 3.
The Grande Utopias are not only
loudspeakers that have had a
great impact on their generation.
It’s also the most accomplished
concept of “The Spirit of Sound”, the
ultimate reference. After the “W”
cones and the pure Beryllium
tweeter of the previous models
that had marked a technological
advance, the Grande Utopia EM
adopts an Electro-Magnet woofer
(EM) with a force that cannot be
compared to classical technologies.
Superlative performance, unique
style: the Grande Utopia EM is not
only a technological monument,
it’s above all an acoustic sculpture.
Real technological twin sister of
the Grande Utopia EM, the Stella
Utopia EM has absorbed the gist of
the most outstanding innovations,
in a 3-way version and with more
convenient dimensions. The new
13” (33cm) built-in W woofer
works with the same electromagnet as in the Grande Utopia
EM, which is as well efficient in
the infrabass as in the midbass. A
major innovation that makes you
rediscover all the dynamics and
definition in a critical frequency
response that’s totally brought to
light by the Stella Utopia EM.
A three-and-a-half-way loudspeaker, Maestro Utopia is one of the
most sophisticated loudspeakers
produced by Focal. To get closer
to the Grande Utopia EM model
without resorting to an electromagnet, it innovates in the bass
with the MDS (Magnetic Damping
System) to adapt to the listening
room. With its 93dB efficiency, its
punchy dynamics and its outstanding
definition, its power capacity
seems unlimited. Maestro is also
suggested as a studio mastering
midfield system.
The three-way floor standing
loudspeaker Scala V2 has retained
all the qualities of the previous
version which has been unanimously acclaimed by the most
discerning audiophiles world wide
for over 5 years: a beautiful design,
unbelievable musicality and easy
to install. The Scala V2 now
boasts a new bass unit providing
improved power handling, giving
more effective bass and enhanced
control. This has also improved
the midrange register whose
focus has progressed immensely,
resulting in a more precise and
remarkable sound stage.
The latest model of the Utopia III
range, Viva Utopia is a 3-way
loudspeaker dedicated to the most
sophisticated multichannel configurations. Vertical (Viva Utopia)
or horizontal (Viva Center Utopia),
either in Home Theatre or Stereo
configuration, it’s always efficient. Advantages: extreme clarity
of the midrange, high efficiency
and power handling and very low
directivity on the horizontal axis
for perfect control of phase and
3D image. Plus all the Utopia 3
technological skills...

Electra 1000 Be 2
That which stirs emotion...
The Electra 1000 line was founded
on an obvious fact: to make
the heritage, technologies and
performance once reserved for
Utopia more accessible… on an
economic level of course but
not only. We wanted to create a
high-end line of loudspeakers
in harmony with the integration
requirements in the nowadays
interiors, compact, attractive,
sleek and balanced at the same
time. We added an “object”
dimension to our high-end line
that entirely became a decoration
element, while our technologic
patrimony is maintained to tend
towards very high-end sound
definition...
We entrusted our ideas and our
innovations to a designer group
in Paris Pineau & Le Porcher who
sketched out the first contours
in order to unite style and
performance.
This line has been deeply modified
since 2008, with more modern
finishes, a new tweeter combined
with new settings and a new sound
to become Electra 1000 Be 2.
In the end, this is a complete line
made for high-fidelity and HomeCinema, easy to install and to use,
a true emotion-provider with its
sophisticated aesthetics and its
stunning performance.
> The Electra 1000 Be 2 line is available in Basalt, Champagne,
Carrara White, Black Lacquer standard finishes and
Mahogany finish. The side panels and even the whole
loudspeaker body finish can be customized on demand.
> 1” (27mm) pure Beryllium IAL tweeter from Utopia 3.
>E
lectra 1008 Be, Black Lacquer finish.
> 24” (60cm) High Gloss S 1000 stand,
Black Lacquer finish.
> The Electra 1000 Be 2 line can be completed
with the In-Wall loudspeakers. The IW 1003 Be and IW
1002 Be are equipped with the same speakers
Also available with the Aluminum/Magnesium tweeter
for Electra IW 1002 and IC 1002.
The Electra 1008 Be embodies
Focal’s know-how in terms of
high-end compact loudspeakers.
Added to the essential qualities
of the 1007 Be, a more spacious
and natural sound image, improved definition and more precise
bass. The high power-handling
enables it to work in rooms of big
dimensions.
The Electra 1027 Be was a
flagship of the Focal range,
the 1028 Be goes even further,
especially in the bass with the
dual port Powerflow system.
The dynamic leaps forward to
be in harmony with the generosity and definition of the
midrange-treble register that
has always been a reference.
A compact floorstander with
irrefutable charm.
As the whole Electra Be 2 line,
the 1038 Be benefits from new
components and settings. The
awesome strength of the three 7”
(18cm) woofers, endless power, is
now added to the new qualities
gained in terms of sound image
and definition. A true weapon of
mass seduction.
The Electra CC 1008 Be follows
the same evolutions as the
loudspeakers so that the tones
are in perfect harmony. Low
horizontal directivity, high powerhandling, definition and precision
are part of the common points of
Electra Be 2.
Not much evolution for the
SR 1000 Be that benefits from the
3 third “W” cone generation. But
its exclusive “Be/Twin” structure
with dual input permits to use
the SR 1000 Be as well as in a
5.1 system (in bipolar mode) as
in a 7.1 (in dual mono mode)
without increasing the number of
effect loudspeakers in the Home
Cinema room.
24 bits digital processor, 600W
BASH® amplifier, 13” (33cm) “W”
woofer, the Electra SW 1000 Be
offers high-level performance
with a 18Hz cut-off and a 119dB
sound power. The SW 1000 Be
now benefits from a remote
control lock when infrared
conflicts appear with other boxes.

composed of the Hub and
two amplified floor-standing
loudspeakers, providing optimal
acoustic quality. Two-and-a-halfway bass-reflex loudspeakers,

Focal, high-fidelity loudspeaker
providing a seamless soundstage
with admirable spatialisation, an
essential quality to ensure your
listening pleasure.
The installation and use of Easya
correspond perfectly with the new
uses of dematerialised music:
everything is directly built into the
loudspeaker, so external amplifiers
or cables are no longer required.
The wireless Hub is a digital
transmitter sending sound signals
to the loudspeakers, and thanks
to Kleer technology, there’s no
loss in quality or compression.
What distinguishes Easya even
more in Focal’s range of products
is the strong identity of its design,
setting it apart from the previous
traditional ranges. The curved
design, created by the design
firm Pineau & le Porcher, the
aluminium stand and the built-in
LED, make Easya a product with
definite high-perceived value.
Focal has taken a step forward
with Easya, focusing on the ways
we consume dematerialised music
today, and on making Focal’s
famous “Spirit of Sound” more
accessible than ever before.
